This month Science & U! takes on engineering in our everyday lives with some interesting results:
Tinabeth Pina gets a lesson in physics to understand how everyday things like our TVs and cellphones work.
Donna Hanover revisits the MTA’s 2nd Avenue subway tunnel to see how far along the project has gotten.
Mike Gilliam checks in on the construction of the replacement to the Tappan Zee Bridge and talks with bridge designer Khaled Mahmoud.
Dr. Max Gomez looks at something right out of science fiction…. the mechanical exoskeleton which is helping some paraplegic patients to walk again.
Lisa Beth Kovetz visits one science classroom to see what some 11th graders can make out of littleBits, nifty new electronic circuits you snap together like Legos.
Carol Anne Riddell meets a Girl Scout troop that‘s excited about technology, not cookies.
